"Just the second day back training and we're back with a bang, but it's all good.
"The lads were running over the close season and we're all pretty fit.
"This shows what kind of level everybody's at, so the gaffer has a good idea of how far we can push ourselves through the pre-season.
"Football is a physical game and if you're quick you have a big advantage.
